Pitcher of The Year
Brian Johnson (9-6) was outstanding for the PawSox in his 2015 tenure. The 24-year-old lefthander tossed 96 innings with an ERA of 2.53 and a 1.10 WHIP. Johnson even had a six innings of perfect ball before being pulled over a pitch count. Johnson had eight starts for Pawtucket and one for Boston before an elbow tweak finished off his season.
Position Player of The Year
Jackie Bradley never hit close to .300 in the high minors at Portland or Pawtucket until this season. Bradley’s disappointing performances are well documented and 2015 represented possibly his last chance with the organization. Bradley came up big by being named to the league All-Star team, hitting .305 and leading the team in home runs (9) despite playing only 71 games. Bradley, as usual, was a defensive stand-out and his move to Boston showed a lesson well earned in Pawtucket.
